Standard

cath answers img for blog_fb_twitterDo you know how to answer that question? Try this one: “Why do Christians have three Gods?” And here’s another: “Why don’t Catholic priests marry?”

To help its readers handle “fast-curve balls from left field” like these, CFA will start a new series in the August-September issue of its Gospel K Magazine. The series is called “Catholic Answers to Non-Catholic Questions.” The first installment will deal with Scriptures and Tradition. To download the PDF file (1.7Mb), click here.

The series is part of CFA’s response to the Church’s call for a “rediscovery of the faith” when it launched the Year of Faith.

Another Classic Tale sets tone for Gospel Study

Standard

image for blog_fb_twitterIn the August-September issue of CFA’s Gospel K magazine, a comics adaptation of the novel “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” is the lead story for a discussion of the Gospel for the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Luke 12:49-53).

The story, originally written by Argentine Vicente Blanco Ibanez, is set in World War II. It tells of a conflict within a family, between those who stand for peace, and those who advocate tyranny. It is presented to illustrate Jesus’ words in the Gospel: “Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three; a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father…”
